Birthplace of George Bernard Shaw

County Dublin

33 Synge Street, Dublin

This redbrick terraced house at first glance is not partiularly special. In fact it's quite typical of the sort of houses that you will see when wandering around the area of Portobello. However, upon closer inspection, a smal plaque on the wall reveals this to be the birthplace of famed playwright, George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950). The house was opened as a museum to the writer in 1993, but was then closed in 2012.
